Haven't heard of CrossFit before?
This style of exercise involves body weight movements, aerobic exercises and weight lifting. CrossFit is a lifestyle characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone—people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years. Learn more by visiting https://www.crossfit.com/what- is-crossfit.

**Please note that participants will need to answer some basic questions about their health and fitness level. This will not be collected by the University and is only needed for the purposes of health and safety during this introductory course.

Questions? Contact a member of the Wellness Committee - Jacki Lukas Eovitch, Jacqueline.eovitch@wilkes.edu.

Ultimate Frisbee
Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport that takes some elements from football (teams try to progress the Frisbee down the field to the end zone) and soccer (much like soccer, but unlike football, play does not stop until a goal is scored). Weekly games are held at Kirby Park. Everyone, regardless of age/skill level is welcome to join the fun. Please email steven.kheloussi@wilkes.edu if you're interested or would like more information!
